Google is testing a new subscription service that will allow access to hundreds of paid apps and games without ads or purchases within the application.

According to a report by Android Police, the specialized portal on Android, Google is already testing this service called Google Play Pass,that supposedly will cost US $ 4.99 per month plus taxes, although it may vary depending on the territory. According to the report, the people of XDA-Developers have already found evidence since last year that Google was working on this service. The novelty now is that the company will already be testing it officially to launch it soon to the market.

Google Play Pass will be, in a way, the equivalent in Android to Apple Arcade, the mobile subscription service that Apple announced on March 25, although there may be some differences between the two.

And although Apple Arcade will also be an à la carte service and will only be available for video games that will also be created exclusively for this service.

In the case of Google, according to the captures shared by Android Police, it seems that Google Play Pass unlocks access to third-party applications and games that already exist in Google Play as Stardew valley or Marvel Pinball

A person in charge of Google confirmed to Android Police that this service is already undergoing tests. CNET in Spanish sent a request for additional comments to Google.
